Rated 4 stars **** Lorien Legacies: The Lost Files #4-6. Harper (Harper Collins). 2013. 406 pp.

Includes “The Search for Sam,” “The Last Days of Lorien,” and “The Forgotten Ones.”

SecretHistoriesThese novellas give background information on various characters from the popular “I am Number Four” series. As preludes to “The Fall of Five,” they should be read beforehand so readers have background information on some of the exciting events that take place in it.

Both “The Search for Sam” and “The Forgotten Ones” gives more information about Adam, the Mogadorian who plays an important role in “The Fall of Five,” who readers were introduced to in “The Fallen Legacies.” It also fleshes out the characters of Number One, killed first in “I am Number Four,” as well as Sam’s father.

“The Last Days of Lorien” relates Sandor’s story, Nine’s cephan, while narrating the sad history of Lorien, its Mogadorian invasion, and the final trip to Earth by its survivors.

Each novella is an important addition to the Lorien Legacies series, and will be devoured by fans fourteen years old and older.

As a School Librarian, I was Co-Chair of REFORMA's (The National Association to Promote Library Services to the Latinos and Spanish Speaking) CAYASC (Children & Young Adult Services Committee) for 2 yrs. As Co-Chair, I was in charge of all things YA. I have been a member of YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) for many years, and have worked as a school librarian for many years. When I'm not blogging, I like to read, run, race and sing - not necessarily in that order. My blog reviews books I enjoyed (or didn't enjoy), which leaves you to ask yourself "Should I Read it or Not?"
